New tricks!

Georgia is thrilled to have mastered the flip! We had to stop by her school so she could show me after violin. Very exciting!

More flowers!






 Bluets! I love their blue tipped petals.
 The Peach is still going! Look at those bright pink stamens!

Lilacs are blooming just outside my door. The fragrance makes me woozy.  I want to be a bee and spend my day moving from one gorgeously geometric flower to another, breathing them in.

Sleeping out


Warm night. Finally a warm night!! Georgia and I decided to sleep out in the backyard on the trampoline. 

The frogs sang us to sleep,the peepers were loud and then the toads were trilling.

We were both snuggled in our mummy sleeping bags.  I woke up many times (It got cold as the night fell to 46 degrees. Even in my new sleeping bag that is supposed to be warm down to 20 degrees. Hmm)

Georgia was toasty beside me.
Waking up was actually perfect because I was able to experience the night. I heard an owl hooting and saw the almost full moon move across the sky as the hours went by.  I saw the sky turn bright blue and heard the birds go wild with singing as the sun come up. The I stumbled inside and had a nice long hot shower!

Spring Woodland flowers







Oh, here is the Bloodroot blooming!  I love how the leaf cradles and warms the flower.












Here's the Trout Lily with it's patterned leaf speckled like a trout.

Springtime is here!!


Ahh, the forsythia. It's so bright, it almost hurts to look at.  It's shining everywhere this week!




The plum tree is in full bloom!
It is buzzing with honey bees and little droning bugs.
This tree's floral explosion is my tipping point for spring.
Now, I've got to hang on while the season picks up speed. May is so filled with huge transformation and stunning beauty. I want to soak it all in after 6 months of cold and snow.

                                                         Hello there beautiful!
                          Bumble Bees moving from flower to flower. Look at the pollen on those stamens!


Georgia and Cookie play in the mud, the wood frogs are clucking, the leaves are thinking about coming out.

                                                    
                                                                     HOP!
